Surge protectors for farm agrivoltaic installations

Agrivolatism, also called agri-PV, combines the production of energy via solar panels and the exploitation of agricultural land. This ecological approach enhances the value of the land, while increasing agricultural yields as well as animal welfare, and allows an economic gain from electricity production for farmers and electricity producers.

Due to their mostly isolated location and the large exposed area requiring the deployment of long lengths conductors, agrivoltaic fields present a high risk of overvoltages being lightning surges.

In order to avoid problems leading to costly damage and downtime, it is compulsory to install surge protectors at key points in the PV system.
